    1876 Quarter in Copper
    Judd-1455, PR64+ Red and Brown
    A Rare Year for Patterns

    1876 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-1455, Pollock-1604, R.8, PR64+ Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Struck from the regular quarter dies in copper with a reeded edge. It is difficult to term these pieces regular dies trial patterns. Rather, they appear to have been off-metal pieces struck for sale to collectors. The patterns and off-metal striking from 1876 are generally uncollectible. Many are R.8 or unique. The most "common" 1876 pattern is Low R.7. Only two examples of this off-metal striking are believed known. Significant mint red remains over each side with a slightly mellowed (brown) overlay. The strike is sharp throughout, and there are only a few tiny specks of carbon present.
    Ex: Beverly Hills Signature (Heritage, 11/2011), lot 4110.
